Slide Show HomeDStretch Home The ceiling of this gem of a cave contains
paintings of fish and animal figures done in beautiful
colors that DStretch brings to life. The slideshow documents
my trip to the cave during a wonderful equipatas rain.
It also contains photos and enhancements of the
ceiling. The panorama
shows the entire ceiling and a number of DStretch
enhancements. Click on the image below to see some of
my individual photos and enhancements.
When I think of Great Mural Painting the first image I get
is of the huge monos (human figures) at Cueva Pintada.
In this cave there is only one poorly drawn human
figure. This cave is not an advertisement for
Great Mural theories that emphasize ancestor worship.
Are the fish painted here depictions of real creatures or
fantasies? Only an ichthyologist would know for sure,
but I would bet that most are real. SlideshowPanorama
The cave is located in the Sierra de Guadalupe, Baja California
Sur. It is in the middle of the peninsula, not particularly
close to the ocean. Photos taken November 30, 2007.
